The name damson is derived from the early name "damascene", which in turn comes from the Latin prunum damascenum, or "plum of Damascus". It is believed that damsons are descendants of the wild sloe, possibly crossed at some point in the past with the cherry plum. Whatever their heritage they are well known for their delicious if slightly sharp flavour and their characteristic dusty purple colour.
